The main event within the Good & Wine festival is the traditional food and wine fair, where over 50 exhibitors from Serbia and region will showcase their offer at the Sava Promenade (the plaza behind the Geozavod building) on Saturday, September 5, the press release says.
On that day, the visitors will be able to taste wines, local brandies (rakijas), organic juices, prosciutto, cheeses and other delicacies.
